The third and final album from the Hot Snakes originally released in 2004. Led by John Reis (Rocket From The Crypt, Drive Like Jehu), Audit In Progress elaborates on the band's downstroked rhythms and subsonic pulses with more fire to the mix than ever. The band recorded the album with new drummer Mario Rubalcaba at San Diego’s Big Fish Recording with engineer Ben Moore. An increased attraction to dissonance surfaced on Audit in Progress. The album was well-received by critics and fans and was named "best punk album" at the 2005 San Diego Music Awards. More shows were played and enjoyed and the band visited many cities all over the world. By 2005, the band spiraled into a mid-life punk crisis and stopped performing.
